Product Description

MacGyver is back!  In a new, thrilling action game, MacGyver is tapped as the last hope when a computer virus rips through the top secret D.A.W.N Laboratories, trapping its scientists underground. Arriving on the scene, Mac realises it’s a race against time before the laboratory runs out of air and so must make a potentially deadly descent into the complex. Mac works his way through the labyrinth of complex puzzles but-- little does he know-- that an even deadlier enemy awaits him in the darkness.

This is a difficult game that is hard to solve. This game is full of puzzles that you have to MacGyver your way through. They can be difficult. As a temptation it offers you a free MacGyver Cheat App in the upper LH corner and that downloads another app to your tablet. That down load is another 59.64 MB on top of the original download of 89.84 MB. While the first MacGyver app is relatively safe the second one is a sneak attack onto your device to insert Flurry Analytics and multiple adware programs. It is a program that also adds the permission to read and write to your USB storage. Oh yeah it also adds Chart Boost Adware, Flurry Ads and Flurry Analytics. This is a sweet move on the unsuspecting adults and children playing the game. Because of this I rated the app a one star item.

The original game starts off with a cartoon like story presentation. The first task is to redirect some laser sensors. Immediately after you do it you are asked to post your progress to Facebook. This request to post to Facebook continues throughout the game. If your child is playing the app on your tablet they may be sharing their game progress with your contacts. As a note, when I solved each level the FaceBook requests kept coming and they are annoying.

This app includes code to enable Facebook. The game installed 89.84 M and 16.59 MB went into my device storage and 73.25 MB went into my SD storage. It did this automatically.

4.0 out of 5 stars Has variety, but needs more MacGyverisms June 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
Update: Now that the developer has addressed the privacy concerns, I've decided to give this game a shot. (So far, I am on the third stage).

This is a puzzle game where you have to solve a variety of puzzles in order to reach the next stage. While it has MacGyver in the title, other than the cutscenes and some puzzles where you have to divert lasers in order to get through an elevator shaft (a reference to the pilot of the TV show), this game does not have many references to the TV show, nor are you building anything with items from the environment (and I have yet to see Mac use any duct tape or paper clips). :(

The nice thing about this game is that each stage gives you a choice of 2 or 3 different types of puzzle to work on, and you are not required to solve all of them before moving on to the next stage. That's a good thing, since some of these puzzles are really tough.

As for the strobe light effects some people complained about, I didn't notice anything while playing, so this may be a hardware-related issue (I am using a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0).

While it may not have you making explosives from household items, this is still a solid overall puzzler, so if you're in to MacGyver and puzzle games, this is definitely worth a look. (Although, if you don't want Fairplay collecting your MAC and IP addresses, play on a device that is not connected to the internet).

Original : When I first saw this, I got excited. A MacGyver game! Finally! And since it also happened to be the Free App of the Day, I eagerly grabbed it up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheat, indeed! June 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
Sneaky, evil, invasive. Bad, bad devs! Cheat app includes numerous spyware, adware, and trackware payloads. Avoid and rate badly. Devs must learn this doesn't pay.

1.0 out of 5 stars no sneaky spyware please June 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
Really not a big fan of unnecessary invasive permissions. Trying to sneak adware into the game guide is really low.

1.0 out of 5 stars really? June 27, 2014
Verified Purchase
These apps want more and more of your personal data.
Does your credit card company require ALL that info?
How about when you bought a car?
Went to the dentist?
Not even when you put your kids in Pre-K?
So why the in the world would these rinky dink apps need it?

1.0 out of 5 stars excessive permissions June 27, 2014
By atago
Verified Purchase
I was excited for a MacGyver game, but the adware and excessive permissions murdered my excitement for it. There are no GOOD reasons for what they intertwined into what should be just a game.

1.0 out of 5 stars WTH is up with the strobe effect? June 27, 2014
By enigma
Verified Purchase
It seems to me that the strobe effect that others and I are seeing is a bug. the screen shots don't show these crazy colors. I would very much like to play this game but I cant even look at the screen long enough to read the first sentence. PLEASE FIX! Kindle 1st gen.

1.0 out of 5 stars Would MacGyver approve of spyware? June 27, 2014
By Nick Z
Verified Purchase
The other reviewers (especially Masked Crusader) did a great job of summarizing how invasive this app is. Buy while it's FAOTD, don't install, and rate 1 star!
